I've had the 110 proof prototype which was phenomenal. This one comes very close and most who've tried both probably couldn't tell. This is proof that HP blancos dont translate into heat on the tongue. This is a case where the higher proof opens up the best the agave has to offer if cooked right. Plenty of warm agave going in followed by minerals, wet cement, beautifully oily, with some Bazooka Joe, mint, pear, apple, cinnamon. Nice tingly linger to stay in your memory... Grab one without hesitation as these are harder to come by now. For under 60 bucks, this a damn deal!

Clean and lovely legs and tears. The aroma is a brilliant pepper, cooked agave, and minerals which carry through to the taste with a somewhat oily mouthfeel that is nearly perfect in texture for me. Medium/long finish that ends with some black pepper and and nice heat. I tasted this one blind and was not at all surprised when it was revealed. Currently my #1 out of 1579 and, with the G4 repo being my going favorite regularly available in that expression, that's saying something for me!

Cristal Clear juice. Nose: cooked agave, thyme, smoke, mineral, tropical fruit, citrus, sage. Need to oxygenate before tasting to appreciate all the aromas. Flavor: sweet agave, pepper, olive, tropical fruit. Finish nice and long.

If the G4 Blanco 80 proof is all cooked agave, grass, and black pepper; this is all cooked agave, black pepper, cinnamon, and alcoholic heat. I can see how the heat here may turn some people off since it certainly isn't as subtle as other high proofs. But there's still that classic El Pandillo minerality alongside some light fruits and citrus. Adding a few drops of water helps quell the heat if the alcohol proves to be too much. EDIT - I've let this open up a bit more and I'm getting lots of green olive too. Definitely take the extra time to let this one breathe.

This tequila needs to sit and open up. You also need to take your time with this, there is a lot going on with the nose, so do some exploring. This has the complexity of the G4 coming out of 1579. Nose: cooked agave, alcohol, cinnamon, wet cement after a summer rain, citrus (tangerine) vanilla, jalapeño, sweetness of grilled pineapple and peach Flavor: starts off hot, has a creamy and spicy mouth feel, cooked agave, hot cinnamon like the candy atomic fire balls, and citrus Finish: starts with sweet ripe fruit, gets spicy like green peppers, the cooked agave comes through, and finishes hot and leaves your mouth tingling Yes I would cook with this like flaming of butter sauté shrimp, scallops, or clams.

Tasting this G4 108 and a Spring Water 110 side by side. 108 is hot at first, tip of tongue numbing. Several small sips taken over 10 minutes or so have less effect and I think we're ready to taste. Technically the single water G4 55% is not the same as the blended water G4 108. Made at the same distillery these have many similarites but also numerous differences. Mouth effect is really almost 180° with the buzz right up front on the 108 assaulting the tongue whereas the SW 110 is at the end more near the back of the throat as you swallow. Great stuff in both bottles though, no doubt.

Nose: The nose needs some breathing time - you will be rewarded with subtle transitions. Opening charge brings minerals, a cellar note and rich cooked agave with undercurrents of baked pineapple. A bit later citrus blooms. Then a shift toward vegetal/herbal aromas: thyme, sage and dried oregano. Next warm “barrel-like” spices emerge: cinnamon, dried ginger, vanilla and star anise. And the agave takes on a more caramel like aroma, complementing everything that has come before it. Flavor: Somewhat creamy in the mouth. Yet with a blast of heat: black pepper, spicy cardamom, and cinnamon red hots, that sends some fire to the back palate. The herbal notes retreat somewhat, leaving the lively spices dancing on my tongue. Finish: Trace bitterness. Light colored fruit, pineapple and agave hangin’ on for the ride. Be forewarned, it finishes a little hot.

The nose is wonderful with lots of beautiful cooked agave. On the palate, you immediately notice the pleasant thick viscosity. Right after, is a strong burst of caramelized cooked agave, citrus, and minerals. After that, I detected a strong, deep, bitter licorice. I didn’t mind it at first, but it was stuck on my tongue and just lasted and lasted. Not enjoyable at all. I rinsed my palate with water, but got the same result. I waited several hours to try again, but I still got that strong, lingering bitter licorice aftertaste. It’s more prominent than any flavor in the tequila and just doesn’t let go. I don’t know if I got a bad bottle or what, but I don’t enjoy it at all. Very disappointing after all the hype I’ve heard from it. This is Lou Tequila and Tequila Hombre’s favorite high proof blanco so I’m really shocked. I’ll let it rest for a while and edit the review to reflect my findings. Update: After several weeks, the bitterness did calm down some, but the overall flavor is still not pleasant, especially the finish. This is by far the worst high proof tequila I’ve ever tried.

Agave! Absolutely one of the best tequilas I've ever had. Somehow the high proof only ENHANCES the agave flavor. Excellent product again from the Master Felipe!

Sourdough! this might be the most complex in my library. so many layers, mild agave notes light ethanol, on the nose.. also a nasal hint of some sort of flowery cheese that I quite can't identify (a very mild cranberry goat cheese) maybe. roasted pineapple, ginger truffles... on the mouth I received a burst of heat and cinnamon, oregano, grapefruit bitterness with blood orange sweetness, very silky green apple barrel type spices flowing thru. still getting ginger and floral on the palate. back of the throat gets pepper corn and heat (nice heat) they soon transform to cooked agave herbal citrus tamarind chile peppermint finish. mouth coating is great and leaves a lingering hominy/tostada en las brasas taste.. that I like.

Looks very nice in the glass. Clear and bright. Nice slow legs and pearls all around the glass. Nose: Initial alcohol dissipates after letting it breathe. Cooked agave, Cinnamon, coconut, Lemon, some oregano, flowers and brine. Taste: silky mouthfeel with a good bite. Leaves the gums and tongue a bit numb. Fruity flavor dominated by green apple, grapefruit and lemon. The alcohol is there but not overbearing. Some Jalapeño. Finish: Nice peppermint finish, and I am getting a bit of cooked hominy. Would drink again, but I prefer the 80 proof.

G4 108 Nose: AGAVE BOMB. As soon as i started pouring it into my Riedel glass, I could smell it. Definitely some ethanol, but not as potent as you’d expect from a 54% unaged spirit. Minerals, a touch earthy, and a fleeting hint of cinnamon. Palate: Agave, front and center. First taste is just all cooked agave for me. Doesn’t burn like you’d think, though some ethanol is there. Very warming and delicious. Second tasting, getting pepper very clearly. Citrus comes through, more lemon than orange. A slight black olive note that quickly fades. Agave really is the star here. Verdict: Hot DAMN this is so amazing. Felipe knows his blancos, this blows standard G4 out of the water, and that’s saying something because that is an exquisite blanco. Felipe Camarena, you beautiful genius, this is a high proof blanco that will be on my shelf forever. The only reason I might give Tapatio 110 the edge is because they’re roughly on par price wise, but Tapatio is 1L. If I take value out of the equation though…G4 is one of the best blancos I’ve ever had, I’ll just say that.

Green olives and minerals on the nose. Very oily on the palate with lots of black pepper. Tasted alongside arteNOM 1579 blanco. Much more interesting. Much longer finish

Brilliant juice! The aroma is full of cooked agave and and the finish is top notch. . . I always have G4 Blanco and Repo on hand to sip. I bought this in thoughts of using it for cocktails. That’s changed now, no way will I mix this.

The taste of alcohol is present on this high proof but as you work your way through the bottle you will find a nice array of flavors agave pepper cinnamon. Makes for a very nice sipper.
